Senka (1082) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours dull straw goldenlike. Thin head, ok lacing. Taste is a bit metallic and sweet. Stale bread aftertaste. Everything that goes with the style of Světlý. Not my type of beer, but is overal a drinkable session lager.

MarkoNm (2740) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 22, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Pours a clear golden color, topped with a small white head, no real retention. Very gentle bready aroma with some grassy hops present. Taste is mildly sweet, quite bready with mild bitterness in the finish. Short lived aftertaste, bready bittery feel. Very light and superbly fresh feel. Very fine and drinkable.

TedE (1326) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2015
330ml bottle into tumbler glass. Grainy malt nose. Amber beer, a few bubbles, thin head. Watery, grainy taste. Finish is smoky and grainy. Ordinary and forgettable.

Bottle from Base Camp. Hoppy nose, grass, herbs, biscuit malt. Medium gold. Crisp, brady, low hops, bit of orange and melon. Medium carbo. Ok. Maybe not so fresh. Decent, though.

flying_pig (1571) - SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Pint in Smith’s of Smithfield, London (£4.95):
A shaky start with a poor look & weak nose but things soon picked up. Sweeter than expected but there was a good balance & it was easy to drink; a pretty nice beer but it could easily have been so much better.

3.1
ttoadee (1491) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Gold pour, quick head. Nose is light malt and hops. Bitter. Middle shows a solid malt backbone, floral hints. Finish is dry and fairly bitter. Not ground breaking, but solid.

kind of malty and kind of sweet but somehow lacking hoppy taste. Not that great.
